Nice and cool – easy, fruity ice cream enjoyment

Fruchtiger Eisspaß

Keep it fresh! When you want to keep a cool head on warm days, you can’t beat a deliciously refreshing ice cream. But forget about the manufactured ice-cold products you find in the supermarket as they frequently contain high amounts of sugar and fat. Instead, conjure up some creative delicacies yourself using plenty of fresh fruit. On to the spoon, get set, go!

Something fruity on a stick

The easiest way to transform fruit into something cold and tasty.

You will need:

Fresh fruit, such as berries, mangos, oranges or kiwis
Fruit juice – freshly squeezed is perfect
Sweetener, such as honey or agave syrup
Ice pop moulds (you will find these in shops selling kitchen utensils)

Method:

1. Wash the fruit, peel it if necessary and purée it together with the fruit juice.
2. Some agave syrup or honey will provide that certain special sweetness. If you prefer your ice pops “straight”, simply leave out the sweetener.
3. Pour the fruit mixture into the little moulds and leave them in the freezer for a few hours.
4. Let’s lick!

Cinnamon, vanilla, nuts for added taste

Method:

1. Purée the fruit and some honey or agave syrup.
2. Add your preferred dairy product and stir.
3. Place the mixture in the freezer and stir it through every 20 minutes until you have a creamy mass of ice cream. Flavour with a pinch of cinnamon or vanilla.
